MOSCOW, January 28. /ITAR-TASS/. A program for the Russia-Italy Bilateral Year of Tourism in 2013-2014 features more than two hundred events in cities and towns in both countries, Italian Ambassador to Russia Cesare Maria Ragaglini told a news conference on Tuesday.
“These are various exhibitions, concerts, seminars and presentations,” he said. “We will hold a festival of Italian films in Russia and will show some films of the Venice Film Festival.”
“There are also plans to organize a photographic exhibition, devoted to 49 sights of Italy inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, as well as an exhibition displaying photographs of our country’s most beautiful cities.”
One of the biggest events in the program will be an exhibition devoted to legendary Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi, timed for his 200th birth anniversary. The exhibition has already opened at the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow, Ragaglini said.
“The program is very rich,” he noted. “Some events are already under way and some will follow soon.”
